Buccaneers: Five Reasons for Concern Heading Into 2017
Number Two Wide Receiver
We have to get the man in the picture some help!
Everyone knows the greatness of Mike Evans. We have talked about it time and time again. He’s an elite receiver that doesn’t get the respect around the league that he deserves. Maybe it’s the Tampa market, who knows? That’s neither here nor there. Evans is great and we are lucky to have him.
He needs an assistant. I talked about Cameron Brate emerging as another weapon in my previous post, but they need a guy on the outside. Evans is not the speed guy, he is the possession receiver. They need a guy that can take the top off of a defense.
The secondary weapon will also help Winston and his problem with forcing the ball into tight spaces. With another receiver that he can trust, he doesn’t have to look for Evans on every down. According to Fantasy Pros, Evans led the league with 171 targets. That doesn’t have to happen.
Get him some help.
